2023-2024 General Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Sample Four-Year Plans


Total required semester units are 120 and the Four Year Plan is a sample study plan. The sequence and specific courses given are suggestive; please see an advisor each semester to plan your personal program and track your progress using the Academic Requirements Report (ARR) in MySSU.

Some major and GE courses may be interchanged fall and spring semester depending on course offering each semester.

General Education Notes:

  • GE Areas A2 and B4 should be completed by the end of the first year. Some students may take year-long courses for GE A2 and/or B4.
  • GE Area A1 and A3 should be completed by the end of the second year
  • Students should enroll in Upper Division GE courses after completion of Areas A1, A2, A3, and B4 with a C- or better, lower division GE in that area, and 45 units total.
  • Not all First-Year Learning Communities (FLC’s) meet the same GE areas.
  • GE Area D must be taken in two different subject areas across the nine total required units in lower division (LD) and upper division (UD).
  • Students must take American Institution requirements in U.S. History and U.S. Constitution/California State and Local Government. These requirements may be met in GE.

Transfer Students: The Junior and Senior year, in most cases, are representative of a two-year plan for transfer students. Please see the department advisor or department chair to be advised. The department will assign you a faculty advisor, based on your chosen concentration, who will help you to plan your concentration courses and set career goals.
